COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkeller’s tribute to the green gold.

Mikkeller er klar med endnu en IPA, der ikke er bange for at leve op til navnet. Humlen er som den skal være: aromatisk, amerikansk og aggressiv, så man ikke er i tvivl om hvad man nyder. For nyde er hvad Green Gold ligger op til. Karamelmaltens sødme og fylde danner en lækker bund, der rammer smagsløgene, inden humleeksplosionen sætter ind, og som rydder op igen, og balancerer det samlede indtryk, så man kun har lyst til én ting, nemlig endnu en tår. De lækre amerikanske humler simcoe, amarillo og cascade giver masser af citrusnoter, men kæler også for din tunge med fersken og grannuancer samt masser af friskhed.

Tasted on tap at Henrik Øl & Vinstove. A good and sweet malt base punished with loads and loads of citrus hop. Pours golden/amber with moderate and golden head.

ClubGonzo (4164) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a thick, tan, nitro-like dense head, resting majestically above a deep, bronze body. Lovely. Nose: fresh, green hops, grass, hints of peaches and spruce. Lovely lovely. Taste is full-bodied malts and bitter, grassy hops, peaches and spruce. Smooth palate. Long-lasting bitter finish. A real top-of-the-line IPA. Three times lovely for this one. :-)

hamrech (134) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Ridiculous IPA. Flavor is booming, layered but not too complex. Extreme resin, a good helping of pine and malt, hops are thick but not too much. Medium-heavy slick mouth for an IPA, I like it a lot. Nose is similar to the flavor, but unlike the flavor it’s pretty subdued. Pretty wild burnt orange color, dark for an IPA and semi-transparent, looks great. Jesus Christ I love this brew on every level. Outstanding, maybe one of my top 5 IPAs ever.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2011
Tap@Olympen. Nice fruity, resinous and grassy hop notes in the aroma, citrus and tropical fruits. Sadly it’s a bit overridden by sweet caramel malts. I feared this would be too sweet for my liking, and I was right. It ended fairly sweet, not refreshing and dry like I had wanted. Still good, I just prefer my IPAs to be crisper and lighter on the malts.

KnutAlbert (6223) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2011
On tap at Olympen. Murky brown, compact hop juice. Grass, watercress, mustard, grapefruit. Packs ennough punch to make this a beer for slow sipping.

keepersj12 (2743) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Very nice IPA. Pours a clear amber with a small lingering head lacing nicely. The aroma is malty sweet, bread and yeast, earthy. The flavor is sweet up front giving way to a citrus pine back end. The finish is quite dry, crisp and clean. Very good.

Chalsk (1068) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Pours a burnt orange amber color with an off white foam head. Has an aroma of citrus, with lots of pine and caramel. A big malty IPA with a sweet citrus taste and a nice hop hit. Lots of caramel lingers through the finish. Creamy mouthfeel.

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2011
Draught at Patricks, Kristiansand. Pours dark amber with good, offwhite head. Aroma is citrus, grass, caramel and hay. Taste is light to medium bitter. Light to medium body, thin to oily, average carbonation. Medium bitter finish.

arkurzynski (1559) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours a red-amber color - brilliant. Copious off-white head and carbonation. Grapefruit hopping, orange zest, some soap suds, caramel candy. Flavor has some great piney/grapefruit bittering that doesn’t showcase the caramel malt like the aroma does. Some toasted malt notes. Medium body.

Palme (3474) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
Tap @ Henriks, Bergen. Pours a dark hazy brown body with a decent off-white head. Lots of piny hops and heavy on the sweet caramel. Fully-bodied and lively carbonation. Tastes as it smells only a bit more caramel. Oily and medium bitter ending.
